As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Smiles and Training Shots

Had a very special visitor, a blast from my past, drive into the city to see me today.
And while we were together, we were approached by a news channel wanting to interview us about tonight's big basketball game with the Raptors.
He never did like me taking pictures even back when we first were together and nothing has changed.  I had to try my best hand at sneaking pictures of this Malaysian cutie.
I for one am not shy with the camera and today I snapped these two post training pictures.  The one on the left is of me after boxing and then the other is after weight training.  It was a long day of intense training, always is, but today I felt exceptionally successful with killing my training.  Yaaaaa, go me!
